Fellowship / Community / Uniting with People

Work hand in hand with people.

This hexagram refers to a group of people working in harmony. However, there are different situations of uniting with others, some appropriate, others not. The overall value to be discussed here is trust, and trust-building in all kinds of relationships.

1. This is a time to leave your familiar surroundings and get into the open. Let others know about your projects and ideas and be impartial in sharing with others. It brings you and those you are sharing with advantage to meet in a spirit of communion and with a positive mindset.

2. When you lose your impartial spirit and adopt partial views, you will end up in a clique, not a real community. This is the result of narrow-mindedness. You may later regret your selfish motives, and you will realize that you have only created limitations for everyone involved.

3. You may not be entirely clear about your motives. You also may lack a public spirit and hold narrow views. Your ambition may be greater than your potential for realization: this brings about inner friction and works counter to coherence. You may realize that those around you have an agenda and do not really cooperate with you. Thus for a certain time not much can be achieved.

4. To be obsessed with certain personal goals may isolate you from others in the long run. However, you are now in a position of going forward through introspection and inner change. The achievement of your goal is possible, but not through any kind of forceful action. When you realize that, you are heading toward the light. Then true communion with others will be possible and bring advantage for all parties involved.

5. Your inner coherence brings positive resonance from others who are in a similar situation. Together you can remove the obstacles that were in the way to achievement and great victory is in sight!

6. There is potential for community with others, but this relationship will be limited in some ways. You will realize that you have little influence upon those you wish to cooperate with.
